Competition of Elegance of Villa d'Este or Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este is an elegance competition for classic and vintage cars..

The link between the most beautiful classics and the vehicle studies of the future presented in a special class make the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este a unique event in the world. The fantastic location beside Lake Como, the select field of participants and the long tradition of the Concorso first held in 1929 are other reasons for its exceptional status. Since 2011 the event takes place in the second half of May.

BMW Group has organised the Concorso, jointly with the Grand Hotel Villa d'Este, for the last ten years

An exclusive Jury drawn from all over the world headed by Jury President Lorenzo Ramaciotti will decide on the coveted awards.
